Note: You can use this syrup to sweeten tea, coffee, fruit punch, fruit salads... the uses are endless. It eliminates the grainy texture of just using straight sugar.
2 1/2 cups sugar
1 cup water
Combine ingredients in 2-quart heavy saucepan over medium-high heat and bring to a boil. The sugar should dissolve. Remove from the heat and pour into clean air tight glass bottles. Let cool completely before using. Simple syrup can be stored in the refrigerator.
